Free XBL Gold in time for Mass Effect 3 demo

Mass Effect 3‘s upcoming demo is to be playable by all, it turns out, not just those with Xbox Live Gold memberships.

“A limited time Gold access” will be granted to all who download the sampler, it’s been announced, though no word yet on when exactly it’ll kick in nor how long it lasts.

The demo, due out in a week and a half, will give players a taste of both the single-player and online co-op components. It’s out on the 14th. Grab some more info on it here.
